costs is one of the principal entitlement costs that unless reformed will bankrupt the economy. >> yes, but here's how to lower the cost. lower the age of medicare, not raise it. >> rose: you are opposed to raising it, so that you don't get medicare until you are older. >> if you want to raise the taxpayers money in the context of obama care and health-care system today, i make, i think, a fairly coghent argument in this article that if you lower the age to 64, there is a woman in hereho ends up in the emergency room, bridgeport hospital. who, no, the standford hospital who is 64 years old and 11 months. a month away from medicare. she's got no insurance. her bill is $21,000. medicare would have paid about $800 for that. now you say well, okay, but the taxpayers would have paid the $800ment she's going to pay the $21,000. first of all she is not. she is doesn't have the money. second under obama care, she will be required to have health insurance. she will pay much higher premiums because the big insurance companies, aetna, cigna, you name it, pay hospitals much, much more for that ser
of our economies, competition and so for us to all of a sudden pull up the gangplanks and worry about ourselves alone i think will bring the kind of problems that we saw before. nothing is a complete analogy, but i do think that there are some lessons learned from this. i do also believe that many americans do understand that we have a stake in what is happening in other countries. the part that i think we need to understand now is i believe in the strength of america. i think that we have a huge role to play in the world but i don't see why we have to do everything alone and so i very much agree with the approach of having partners where we can, in fact, help in other parts of the world together. that would be my shortest version of what i believe in and that i really do think while i understand the pain of people in this country i think only solution to resolving it is for us to be active internationally with others. >> rose: one question is whether that's what the rest of the world wants. many people come here and say yes, in fact, when they talk to foreign leaders, they do not wan
sanctions been on iranian behavior. >> well they certainly affected the economy, had a huge effect on the economy and led to the devaluation of the iranian currency. but it's an excellent question because there's some talks coming up now in kazakhstan of all places in late february involving the eu, the united states and the iranians. and so this is going to be a venue in which people are going to be able to see to a certain extent how serious iran is about negotiating on limits on its nuclear program. there hasn't been negotiations for some significant period of ti. and this is an opportunity to test the iranians. i think this initial round is not going to prove much but certainly over the next six months, i think there will be an ample opportunity to see if there is an intent on the iranian part to reach some sort of compromise. >> rose: leon panetta and others have said the following. we have no information that there's been a decision on the part of the iranian government and the most influential people there to builds a nuclear weapon and a missile that will deliver it. what
technology has seeped into more and more crevices and nooks of the economy. because when i started at sequoia capital there's no way that we would have considered investing in a payments company, a financial services company, a media company. an advertising company. all of those sorts of things we've invested in quite happily in the last 15 years. it was technology and-- seeping out everywhere. >> rose: at the core of every business. >> exactly. and where technology goes, we follow. >> rose: you've been outspoken or at least you've made public statements saying wait, don't be so critical of apple because of the decline in the stock price. you believe in the future of apple and there's nothing, no reason not to be excited about the continued growth of that company. >> i'm not a soothsayer. all i was trying to do in the pandemonium after they announced their results recently was just try to paint a picture of realistic expectations for a company that is now as large as apple is. and-- . >> rose: second largest company in the world. >> and the point that i was making was that if the growth rate
force that will help the united states compete and win in a global economy. it will not be easy or gentle. it will not be quick. it will require a struggle over power and money. my grandmother asked how hard can that be? very." so tell me about the struggle th has to be fough well -- >> engaged. >> look at where we are as a country. we are ranked 14th, 17th, and 25th out of all developed nations in reading, science and math respectively. our 25th ranking in math puts us behind countries like hungary and slovakia, which is -- i mean this is just not who we are as a nation. and in order to -- >> rose: not what made us great. >> no. and it's not going to make u eat the fure unless we fix it. and i think that, you know, if you look at america today we have one of the lowest social mobility rates in the entire world. meaning if you are a child born into poverty in this country, the chances you will ever escape poverty are not good. which i think goes counter to everything we believe in as a country. so what's at stake is the lives of kids and the values of this nation which i think
, are feeling the heat. then there's coming government spending cuts. does the economy have enough kick in it to withstand the sequester? and a big win for activist investor david einhorn in his fight to get apple to share the wealth, with its shareholders. that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! if you get a paycheck, no doubt you have seen it shrink this year. higher payroll taxes have taken 2% out of working americans take home pay. at the same time, gasoline prices have been rising and fast. together, this cuts into the spending power of consumers, and that's bad news for a host of companies, from restaurants to retailers. erika miller reports on how some of these firms are trying to fight back against the pay pinch. >> reporter: virtually every worker in america is taking home 2% less in pay this year because of higher payroll taxes. that's not just bad for consumers, it's also bad for businesses. three out of four households are cutting spending to cope with lower pay. for one out of three households, it means eating out less. consumers are also changing where they dine. >> we are movi
